USA will get a chance at history and revenge Saturday night in Glendale.
USMNT have never finished better than fourth at Copa America, and can finish third with a win over Colombia in the consolation match. The match will take place on Saturday at 8 p.m. Eastern and will air on FX.
Colombia defeated USA in their opener, then sputtered their way to the semifinals. A slow start against Chile was their downfall, as La Roja scored two goals in the first 11 minutes to advance to the final.
USA achieved their goal of reaching the semifinals of their own tournament, and received an international wake-up call in the form of a 4-0 beating at the hands of Argentina. Klinsmann and Co. still have work to do, but now they’ve seen firsthand much skill is needed to play with the world’s best.
